A centuries long border controversy between Guyana and Venezuela has simmered and cooled from time to time. For Guyana’s defense, boundary markers serve as clear evidence that the Essequibo belongs to Guyana. The photos below, taken by Guyanese citizen Thorne Arthur in April 2023, show the boundary markers between Guyana and Venezuela at Korosima, Region 1, Guyana, South America.

After a dispute between the Spanish and British Colonial powers, the Paris Award of 1899 made a settlement where British Guiana came to a slight compromise and relinquished part of the disputed territory (about 5000 square miles) to Venezuela. These boundary markers at Region 1 were placed in 1901, two years after the 1899 award. The Venezuelan government of that time took participated in the placement of these boundary markers.

From antique stamps to boundary markers, the evidence that Essequibo is, was, and will always belong to Guyana is overwhelming. The Essequibo has always been administered by Guyana, and will always be.
